Drop the wea–err, weiners

Some people will do anything for a little excitement. Here’s a guy who wired up a bunch of sausages to make them look like sticks of dynamite and strapped them around his waist, strolled into a restaurant, demanded the day’s take, and held the police off for an hour… until the arrival of the bomb squad, who exploded into laughter:

Singe He threatened to blow up a restaurant and its patrons unless they handed over the day’s takings.

But when a specialist bomb unit arrived, they realised the bangers were actually sausages. ‘When we saw what he had round his waist, we couldn’t help laughing.

‘Some of the sausages still had the wrappers on them,’ said one bomb squad officer in the city of Benxi, northern China. […]

The bomber told police he’d planned the raid because he was depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend.

‘I needed some excitement in my life, and to that extent it was a success,’ he commented.

The bomb squad will never let those cops live this down.

    “Bangers”? *groan* 😆

    He’s lucky he didn’t get shot.

    Those cops showed a lot more restraint than we’ve been seeing from police lately.

    Janus – Bangers and mash!

    wondering – That was my first thought when I read this story — how did this guy not get shot by the police? I suppose they have different strategies for dealing with bombs than they do for guns, but still, a pretty dumb and brazen act for sure!

    Good morrow, all!
    They did not shoot him because he might have had a dead man’s switch on the explosives. Real terrorists sometimes wire their rigs that way. Shoot him, and everything goes “Ka-boom!”
    Good thinking on their part – and hey! He brought lunch with him!
    BBQ, anyone? – CTZen

    Lulz, but seriously, this guy needs some help. If he did this because he broke up with his girlfriend then he’s mentally ill. I still find it humorous that some of the bangers still had the packages on them.

    Most guys would take a very different kind of wiener in hand if they needed excitement and they didn’t have a girlfriend anymore… 😆

    CTZen – That would be a definite disincentive.

    Frankly, I don’t know how the guy pulled this off without bursting out laughing. Oscar winning performance!

    If he did this because he broke up with his girlfriend then he’s mentally ill.

    This was a crime of such brain-damaged magnitude I’m sure they’re probably still trying to figure out whether he belongs in the big house or the nut house.

    Since this happened in China, I don’t think there will be a good outcome for him from this.


Wait. What?
